There is no stopping the super-mom revolution in triathlon right now and Radka Kahlefeldt (CZE) continued to display the power of the new movement with her second win since becoming a mom four months ago. Tim Reed (AUS) showed his class with an impressive win in the men's race.

Kahlefeldt leads from start to finish

After coming out of the water in front Kahlefeldt blasted clear of the rest of the field on the bike, hitting T2 with a lead of over eight minutes on Dimity Lee Duke (AUS) and almost 11 minutes on yet another new mom, Caroline Steffen (SUI). Kahlefeldt opened up more time on the pair to easily take her second straight win of her impressive return to racing. Duke would hang on for second with Steffen making an impressive return to racing with her third place finish.

Reed runs to the win

Mike Phillips (NZL) led the way out of the water, but Reed was just six seconds back with countryman Tim Van Berkel right on his heels. Those three rode together through the 90 km bike, with Van Berkel leading by a few seconds into T2. Once on the run, though, there was no touching Reed, who had a 46-second lead on Van Berkel at 5 km and was almost two-minutes up at the finish. Phillips rounded out the podium.
